    I got a 95 Chevy silverado Z71 it has a 350 motor. I have got two problems any help is appericated. Problem #1 just put an automatic transmission in when it starts to get to higher rpms it slips when you are on the gas it does not want to shift and going up hills it will not kick down... Can someone please help me on why it would be doing this.... Problem #2 when idling at 1000 rpms if i hit the gas it shuts off if it the idle is set at 2.5 thousand rpms and you hit the gas it will stay running.. When it is idling right why does it keep shutting off? It also loads up on gas.... Please help if you can.... Thank You

    The 95 year chevy tranny's were an odd bird. I had one with similar problems, what fixed it was the idler position sensor. Fixed the idle problem and the shifting problem.

    The first thing you need to do is to retrieve the trouble codes from the PCM. You can jump the DLC to get the codes. Take a wire or paper clip and jump the terminals and the codes will flash out.

    Post the codes and we'll help you find the problem.

    Does the check engine light work? Even though it's off there still can be codes.

    Just get a paper clip and jump the DLC. Quick and easy. :)
